#18 Add support for AVR GCC Toolchain bundles


The idea is to wrap a pre-build avr-gcc toolchain with all the tools required for AVR development into an Eclipse Bundle (basically a Plugin for the Plugin).

This will make life easier for beginners, especially on Linux, who don't / can't build a recent avr-gcc toolchain from the sources.

Please tell me if you think this is a good idea.

    I think this would be a great idea.
    I made a Windows bundle before using the Nullsoft Installer.
    Just yesterday, I was considering updating it to include the newest versions of everything so I could distribute it to a group I'm involved with.

    Strange timing coincidence :-)

    Hi Matthew,

    did you build your bundle from the sources or do you just repackage winAVR (or some other prebuild toolchain)?
